Is there a way for Mplus to provide descriptive statistics for categorical variables? Specifically, I'm wondering if there's a way to provide basic frequencies (percentage endorsements of the outcome categories) and cross-tabs of frequencies between two variables.
With TYPE=COMPLEX or TYPE=GENERAL, sample statistics are affected only by weights not stratification and clustering. Those affect standard errors only. You can use the WEIGHT option to obtain sample statistics.

I wanted to ask a follow-up clarification question regarding descriptive statistics with weighted data. I'm trying to obtain weighted crosstabs percentages based on a complex dataset. I've included the weight, stratification and cluster variable in the input, but the output of crosstabs and frequencies does not appear to be weighted.
TECH10 includes univariate and bivariate frequency information that is weighted.

Thank you so much for that description of TECH10. Although I can see frequency information that is weighted, the crosstabs appear to be unweighted -- Is there any way to have weighted crosstabs (or crosstab frequencies?)
